Bart J. Gilbertson is the author of the Pookotz Sisters Mystery series. Although he was born in Wisconsin, he spent most of his youth and later years in the rocky mountain state of Idaho. He has been all over the northwest and it is his love for the lush green state of Oregon that inspired the setting for Pleasant Lake and its inhabitants.  He attended ITT Technical Institute in Boise, ID, and received an Associate in Applied Science Degree for Computer Networking Systems and graduated with honors.  Bart has worn many hats over his lifetime career, but the one he is most proud of is that of being a writer. He currently resides in O'Neill, NE. He has two children.   You can visit his website at http://bjgilbertson2.wix.com/bartjgilbertson
